I’m known for wearing jeans every day and all day. I’ll dress them up and I’ll dress them down, but they are ALWAYS on. Going out to a club I’ll throw on heels, going to the movies I’ll mix it up with boots. I can’t help it, it’s been my go-to wardrobe for decades. But this year I’ve decided to mix it up a bit.
I’ve decided to nix the jeans for the year, that’s 12 months! Three-hundred and sixty-five days! I know for some of you that’s not a big deal but for me this is INSANE. I have to admit I did get a little help, my favorite pair of jeans have a split in them right in the crotch. I’m so bummed because I loved my Lucky jeans. But I’ve decided instead of buying a bundle more I would get rid of jeans altogether (cue in the comfortable yoga pants).
This is how I would typically dress minus the awesome matching purse and accessories… and minus the boots, nail polish, belt because I’ve slipped into tennis shoes. I know totally throwing off the outfit right? I’ve been in a tennis shoe rut for several months.
And this, this is something I don’t think I would be comfortable wearing. From the heels to the fitted skirt. I love the outfit but it doesn’t fit my “style personality”.
But that “style personality” is going to slowly morph into something…
This year is all about spontaneity and growth, so I’ve made the spontaneous decision to get rid of the jeans and grow my wardrobe! And step out of my style comfort zone for good. There’s nothing like jumping in with both feet.
I already made some progress this weekend. I spent some time at Marshall’s today and walked out with two pairs of Michael Kors pants and a couple of shirts. And that’s a big leap forward because not only do I hate shopping alone, I get anxiety walking down the aisles at stores like Marshall’s because everything is left up to You. You have to find the bottoms and a matching top, then figure out what accessories that will go with it. Nothing is styled for you like stores at the mall. Mannequin shopping is my favorite kind of shopping.
